Copyright Transfer

Instructions for copyright transfer

THIS ONLY APPLIES TO MAIN CONFERENCE, POSTER, DEMONSTRATIONS, AND STUDENT SESSION
Workshop papers: please send the copyright forms to your workshop organizers!

The instructions have changed from previous conferences. Please read them very carefully.
  1. The first author must submit a hardcopy original version of the copyright form (available here) by February 6th 2006, to Eneko Agirre (see the address at the end of this page). All papers must use this form; you cannot substitute a different form (such as one provided by your company).
  2. The "first author" is the first in the list of authors on the camera-ready final version of the paper (starting at the top, left). No substitutes are allowed.
  3. No other author should submit the form.
  4. Print out the form. On the form, fill in the title and the entire author list. Then, for "Name and Address of Organization", fill in the relevant information for the first author. The first author (if he or she is authorized by his or her organization) signs under "Signature(s)" and prints his or her name below. Note that the "(s)" no longer applies, there will only be one signature and one name on these lines. If the first author is authorized by his or her organization to transfer copyright, the last line ("Title(s) (if not Author)") remains blank.
  5. If the first author is not authorized by his or her organization to transfer copyright to EACL, a person authorized to do so needs to fill out the last three lines of the form. The first author does not fill out those three lines. (The top part is filled out as described above.) The last line ("Title(s) (if not Author)") should explain the relationship between the signer and the first author (for example "Supervisor of Annegret Richter-Evans").
  6. The signed form must be submitted in hardcopy. No electronic submission will be accepted. If you wish, you may anticipate the content of the copyright transfer form by sending a copy of the original document by fax. However we need to receive also the original hardcopy.
  7. If you would like confirmation that your copyright form has been received, send an email to Eneko Agirre (see address, below) with as subject line "Copyright: <first author last name>, <first author given name>, <paper title>". We will respond when we get your form. If you send your form early, you can save the express mail fees.
  8. If we do not have the hardcopy copyright form (or a fax copy of it) from the first author by February 6th 2006, the paper will not be included in the proceedings. A fax copy of the copyright transfer document, received by the above date, is enough for the paper to be included in the final proceedings. However, we need to receive, possibly later, also an original hardcopy.

Workshop papers: please send the copyright forms to your workshop organizers!
